Students in Robyn Yorker’s class at the Stepping Stones Day Program at Oswego County BOCES just capped off an instructional unit on insects.
The unit included a variety of ELA and science-based lessons involving information about insects: how they eat, how they breathe, and how the see.
Also utilized during the unit was an interactive “Flipped Video” instruction for the students to explore hands-on and face-to-face with their teacher and peers.
Students in the class created life-like insect models as a culminating project.
The students’ replicas identified three major body parts that they learned about in the unit – the head, the thorax, and the abdomen.
